Web Roundup: Biggest Flops of the Summer, Don Cheadle as Captain Planet, and the Ultimate Hypocrisy of George Lucas

Well hello new desktop wallpaper!
Marvel has released some more new promo art for The Avengers, featuring them in the midst of battle. It’s so awesome, I almost want to cry. There’s also a sweet new piece of Loki art to boot! Hit the jump to see them in their full-sized glory!
I guess this is an old shot for Vanity Fair about up and coming stars in Hollywood, but you don’t care about that right now. At least you shouldn’t. All you should care about is Olivia Wilde’s dress and how she needs to be wearing something like that every day. Yow. Za.
Who better to host a show about bizarre experiments and science gone too far than Walter Bishop (or Denethor, for you LOTR fans) himself? The new series he’ll be narrating, Dark Matters: Twisted But True, explores the not so ethical and often blurred lines of scientific research. Using state of the art CGI reenactments, viewers will get a glimpse of these controversial moments in history. More details and a preview after the jump!
I don’t care if you’re a fanboy for Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Apple, anyone, you have to admit Kevin Butler is a wonderful spokesman and his ads for Sony are fantastic. We haven’t seen much of Butler on the airwaves lately due in no small part to the infamous Sony hacking scandal that took place earlier this year, but now he’s back in action and bringing some awesome commercials our way once more. Check out his return above.
I don’t…how…but it’s just…
Mark this date on the calendar as the day that something has rendered me speechless. Someone needs to explain to me WTF the point of this is? Other than looking like a complete moron, that is. I mean, how is that even on there, did they super glue it for Christ’s sake? I think this may actually be more stupid than last week’s WTF item, the Thuggie. That’s an accomplishment.
